A challenge up for grabs, Lazio take on Marseille for Matchday 3 of the Europa League. Simone Inzaghi’s side currently sits in second in the group behind Eintracht Frankfurt (after the 4-1 loss received from the German side in Matchday 2), whilst Rudi Garcia’s side are tied at the bottom of the table (with Apollon Limassol) with just one point after two Matchday’s.
At the Velodrome, it will be like a Derby for former players Kevin Strootman and manager Rudi Garcia, as both played for Roma and have experienced the Derby della Capitale on several occasions.
Below, are the likely eleven Lazio players that will take the field: Felipe Caicedo returns up top with Ciro Immobile; Wallace enters the back three again; and Caceres starts on the right flank (with injuries to Valon Berisha and Adam Marusic, and a suspended Dusan Basta, Inzaghi has no other choice).
Lazio (3-5-2): Strakosha; Wallace, Acerbi, Radu; Caceres, Parolo, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Lulic; Caicedo, Immobile.
